10 Sometimes when killing X ist is not automatically restarted on my systems,
11 maybe you need to run /etc/init.d/xdm restart from a text console to make
12 this work.
13 Instead of Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, I would use Ctrl-Alt-F1 to go directly to a
14 text console. There I would have a look at the at the last lines
15 of /var/log/Xorg.0.log and the output of "top", maybe this shows
16 something like a nspluginviewer process gone wild which you can kill.
17 Also try to kill firefox, will X work fine again then? Use Ctrl-Alt-F7 to
18 go back to the X screen.

23 Do other sound applications work, does "ls > /dev/sound/dsp" work and
24 produce a sound?
